PSL review, Ngezi Platinum march on

Story by Lawrence Trusida, Sports Editor

NGEZI Platinum Stars confirmed their title credentials after yet another fruitful weekend which saw them opening a four-point lead at the top of the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League table.

While the Harare Derby featuring old foes Dynamos and CAPS United was the major highlight of the weekend, 300 km away in Kariba, ambitious Ngezi Platinum Stars were busy consolidating their position at the summit of the log.

Madamburo thumped ZPC Kariba three-nil in their backyard to move to 48 points, four points ahead of Bulawayo giants, Highlanders, who fell one-nil away to Hwange.

Ngezi Platinum are being driven by their youth product Dominic Benhura who chipped in with a brace taking his season’s tally to nine goals and ageless captain Qadr Amini who has eight goals.

What is also interesting is that CAPS United son, Takesure Chiragwi is doing well with Ngezi Platinum Stars while another CAPS United son Lloyd Chitembwe is running out of ideas with his side struggling for both form and goals in the second half of the season where they are closer to the relegation zone than the top.

Makepekepe have now gone for nine matches without victory and have won a paltry six matches this season with their last victory coming on the 15th of July against Green Fuel.

It was, however, a sweet victory for DeMbare who are nine points behind Ngezi Platinum with ten games to go and also waiting for the deliberation of their abandoned match against Highlanders.

At the other end of the table, Army side Black Rhinos finally remembered how to win after edging Manica Diamonds side two-one to move off the bottom of the log for the first time in two months.

Fellow army side, Cranborne Bullets have, however, replaced Black Rhinos at the foot of the table after going down one- nil to Sheasham at Bata Stadium on Saturday.

Yadah and Triangle conclude the bottom four.
